How to Connect Amazon IVS with Restream
Log in to Amazon IVS using your Amazon AWS credentials. Once logged in, click Channel and then Create Channel.
After creating a channel, name the channel and configure the setup. We recommend using the Default configuration as it allows you to stream in Full HD.
If you choose Customized configuration, Select “Standard” for channel type to enable Full HD streaming.
Then select, Ultra-low latency, which is the best real-time interaction with viewers.
Once you’ve selected your configuration, click ‘create channel”. Now you’re ready to connect your Amazon IVS channel to Restream.
Scroll down to the General Configuration box.
Copy the ingest server URL and the Stream Key. You will need to paste these into Restream!
Open up a new browser and go to your Restream Dashboard. From there, select Add/Edit Destinations and select Custom RTMP in the bottom blue bar.
This will open up a popup requesting the ingest server URL and Stream key you just grabbed from Amazon IVS.
The ingest server URL goes in the RTMP URL field and the Stream Key goes in the corresponding Stream Key field.
Then click “Add Channel”.
And just like any other destination, once you start streaming, the stream will be sent to your Amazon IVS channel and in turn, sent to your application or web service.
